With less than a week before Macworld Expo, we gather together a roundtable of Macworld editors--Philip Michaels, Jason Snell, Jim Galbraith, Dan Moren, and yours truly--to discuss the import of a Steve-less keynote presentation and Apple's departure from this time-honored event.
Prior to that discussion I launch the first full installment of Mac 911 Takes to the Air!, an audio version of my Mac 911 tips and troubleshooting column and blog.
I conclude the podcast with a bit of musing about whether a version of iLife that simply worked beyond criticism would be enough to tempt people to upgrade.
